Clinton Cabinetry

My hope was that the three Clinton cabinet members -- former Attorney General Janet Reno, former HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich -- would win their party's gubernatorial nominations in Florida, New York and Massachusetts, respectively. And then be trounced by Bush, Pataki and Romney, respectively.

Well, bad news. Janet Reno is going gone. Cuomo is a goner (see below). And Reich is heading for certain defeat.

This leaves us with former Clinton White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles, who is hard to dislike and a very able man. He'll probably lose to Elizabeth Dole in the North Carolina Senate race.
